Buses diverted for downtown L.A. protest add to commute woes

Commuters to downtown Los Angeles may want to build some extra time into their morning treks on Thursday.

Metro diverted multiple downtown bus routes in anticipation of a planned protest and march through the financial district.

The march was part of labor group Good Jobs LA's "National Day of Action," supported by Occupy Los Angeles protesters and other groups. Protesters gathered at Bank of America Plaza at 333 S. Hope St. and planned to march to the corner of Figueroa and 4th streets, where they expected to "shut down the intersection," according to a news release from demonstration organizers.

A list of the bus route changes was posted on Metro's website.
